In his motion, Randall’s lawyer said his client, “cannot afford to fund the child support security account at a rate of $50,000 every month.”

He warned if Randall was forced to continue making these deposits, “Randall will fall deeper and deeper into debt and will be forced to file for bankruptcy. A bankruptcy filing will not only harm Randall, but Ambry, and most importantly, the children, as Randall is the sole income earner for the family.”

Randall said he already paid $5,250 a month in child support aside from the $50k bank account. He is covering $300k in expenses for the year for both kids.

He accused his ex of excessive spending and dropping thousands on lavish vacations, designer clothes and high end electronics and a brand new car. He said her spending is “more akin to a contestant on The Price Is Right than a devoted mother.”

In a declaration filed with the motion, Randall said his ex was spending $2,414 per day and in March left only $1,700 at the end of the month. He said the movie business was slow and he had only produced one film in 2020 as “opposed to normal years.”
